After watching her cousin, provide nearly 30 backpacks filled with school supplies to students in need in the Center Moriches School District, Hampton Bays High School junior Nicole Culmone decided to follow suit in Hampton Bays. 

Over the summer, Nicole worked to garner monetary donations from family and friends to purchase five backpacks and various school supplies. She delivered the backpacks to the students at Hampton Bays Elementary School just prior to the start of school. Going forward, she hopes to expand her project by reaching out to area business owners for monetary assistance to provide even more backpacks and supplies to those in need.  

Carrying out good deeds is a top priority for Nicole. When not studying, she can be found taking part in her school’s community service organization, the Leo Club. She is also involved in her school’s Future Business Leaders and science clubs and is a member of the Science Olympiad team.
